Secretary (of Interior) is not going to be against it. I don't
know what Mrs. Nixon -- Mrs. Nixon is still trying to decide
what she's going to do, if anything, sense. Her
secretary, Mrs. Vander Heuvel, was in touch with Castro, Nash
Castro, recently, still considering what public positions she
might take in connection with beautification or anything else.
I would think it would depend on inclination, too.
Well, yes, I would think so, but I don't know what her
inclinations are. Nobody else does. I urge she'll continue
to have a committee for better, more beautiful environment, or
change the name of it somewhat, in her symposium and conferences on
various aspects of the environment. Whether it will happen or not,
we shall see. I just don't know.
It seems to me that it needs a personage to spearhead it. It's
well enough for the appropriations committees to be interested and
anxious to do something, but somebody's got to --
-- keep pushing them --
-- to be in the limelight, as far as the program's concerned.
Oh, sure, Somebody has to put it in the budget or testify
